You can unplug the 1041n, but what do you do about the firewall? I ask because we currently have the 881 with some cisco 4410N access points that we are administering. We are having problems with reliability on the wireless connections (I will ask that question in another thread), so we thought we should shut down the wifi on the 881 just to be sure it wasn't causing any problems. We called the GSC and were told that there are only 5 of them in the group and they have a policy that they will not turn off the wifi on the 881. If this is the case, it seems like you can't completely disable wireless during a conference broadcast...
True, but in our building, the firewall is in the back of the building, about as far away from the chapel as you can get, so that hasn't been a big issue.
Frankly, if I were setting up the firewalls, I would create rules to give high priority to all traffic to/from stream.lds.org. If that was done, such traffic would take precedence over other traffic and it wouldnt matter (within reason) what anyone else was doing on the network. That would eliminate the need to shut off the wireless access points.
I have seen a rumor that there may be a system to disable the wireless and/or disallow logins for a predefined time, but I haven't seen anything definite.
